My 2013 NCAA March Madness Bracket Is Busted!

2013 NCAA March Madness Busted BracketYup, so is yours. Admit it.

Technically I guess I’m still in the game because I’ve got Kansas to win the National Championship – and they made it through their 1st game. But man, there’s no way I can even lie to you and say that I had any of the upsets that have come through so far.

I had a not awesome record of 21 wins and 11 losses in the first 32 games for a whopping 68% success rate. Lame.

In the round of 64 we watched way too many low seeds win.

#15 Florida Gulf Coast over #2 Georgetown
#14 Harvard over #3 New Mexico
#13 LaSalle over #4 Kansas State
#12 California over #5 UNLV
#12 Ole Miss over#5  Wisconsin
#12 Oregon over #5 Oklahoma State
#11 Minnesota over #6 UCLA
#10 Iowa State over #7 Notre Dame

Yes, every year you should pencil in a 12 to beat a 5 and a 10 should and will beat a 7 more often than just once in a while – but I did not see this coming at all! At all!

If you picked Florida Gulf Coast over Georgetown I would like to congratulate you. But I will not believe you until I see proof.

Same with Harvard.

And also Lasalle.

Note: If you went to Florida Gulf Coast, Harvard or LaSalle I will believe that you picked them to win – but not for basketball reasons.

2013 NCAA March Madness PredictionThe good news is that (for now) my Elite Eight of Louisville, Kansas, Gonzaga, Indiana, Miami, Michigan State, Florida and Arizona is still intact.

That means that my Final Four of Kansas, Gonzaga, Michigan State and Miami is also intact.

AND my NCAA National Championship final of #3 Michigan State vs. #1 Kansas is still on the board and could happen. And, when things to perfectly according to my plan, Kansas will beat Michigan State 71-64 on April 8 in Atlanta.

Here’s the thought I’d like to leave you all with… we’ve seen low seeds win a lot of games. And we always say that those are upsets but in a year that had no schools at the top of the heap and pulling away from the pack – I think we’re looking at PARITY. There isn’t the same separation that we’re used to. This many upsets is a trend.

Do not be surprised if we see more before this tournament is over.

Maybe even #8 UNC over #1 Kansas on Sunday?
